The Devils in the details once again as the Leafs get set to face New Jersey for the second time in a week, hoping to rebound from a pretty sucky loss (that’s the technical term). Three games ago the Leafs lost in OT to New Jersey as they continued a string of bad play at 3v3. The Devils won their 11th game in a row that night and are on track to win 14 in a row, which would be a new franchise record.
Preview: Toronto Maple Leafs travel to New Jersey
Nick Robertson comes back to the lineup, while Mac Hollowell makes his NHL debut on the third pair next to Jordie Benn.
The starting goalies are confirmed to be Vitek Vanecek (Ilya Samsonov’s old partner) and Matt Murray.
Gio, you’re our only hope.
